AI Image Generators Introduce New Creative Possibilities
Updated September 16, 2021.
Artificial Intelligence or AI Image Generators are a nascent technology that is rapidly evolving. Multiple initiatives are competing to mature their capabilities and capture market and mindshare.
Below is my ongoing attempt to round up the notable players in this space, along with some useful utilities and helpful resources.
DALL-E 2 explanation from their website
There’s a lot of great content already out there to be searched for and consumed. I’m not attempting to compete with that here. In addition, the Discord channels for the actual AI technology companies themselves offer a treasure trove of information and community support.
Let me know if I missed any resources that belong on this list.
See some of the images that I’ve created while experimenting with multiple AI image generators.
I created the top-most illustration with Midjourney, using the prompt “an artist telling a Robot what to draw, 50’s era, bold, graphic, colors, futuristic”
On Saturday August 20, 2022, I’ll be joining in with The Dogmatics for a punk rock and garage-soul three hour cruise around Boston Harbor with Stop Calling Me Frank, The Dogmatics and special guest Barrence Whitfield!

On Saturday, July 9 2022, I’ll be joining in with The Dogmatics at Rumstock at the ONCE Summer Series at Boynton Yards, a full day and night of live music, art vendors, lawn games, and more!
This Outdoor Festival will consist of two parts: The first is a line up of some greaet suft and rock bands, and the second is a Rum Bar Records showcase with The Gypsy Moths, the Dogmatics, Much and the Mires and the Shang Hi Los. Come out and support your local musicians, vendors, and restaurants. There will be food, bar, live music, and community celebration.
Doors open at 12PM with a set by U-ey at the Buoy, followed by 8 original bands. People of all ages can come discover local vendors and local musicians. Children 13 and under are free with an accompanying guardian. There is a bar where we provide non alchoholic options. Families are encouraged to attend!
In addition to the music, vendors will be selling art, clothes, records and more! Lightweight folding chairs are allowed, just please be mindful of not sitting in dancing space or blocking walkways.
Dogs are well loved but not encouraged. We know your dog is well behaved, but we prefer you not bring them. Please show us pictures, we really love dogs.
This event is entirely outside, but Covid is not over. We ask that if you are not vaccinated that you please wear a mask when you are close to other people.
Rain date: 7/10/22
